Why, Yes, Michelle Bachmann Is Running, And She Hit A Homer During Debate

Because we need to have at least one candidate who represents the TEA Party and conservatives. Well, we have one already in Herman Cain, but, he won’t drive liberals crazy like Michelle Bachmann, who pretty much announced during the New Hampshire debates

Excellent! If Sarah Palin isn’t going to jump in, who better than Bachmann? Even Dana Milbank had to admit that she stole the show. And the Washington Post, in picking winners and losers, says of the winners

Michele Bachmann: For viewers who had never heard of the Minnesota Congresswoman before tonight, she put on quite a show. For the first 45 minutes of the debate, Bachmann dominated the stage with quotable lines galore and an audience hanging on her every word. She faded somewhat in the middle of the debate – particularly with her confusing answer on whether she supports a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage – but rallied in the closing moments. What Bachmann proved tonight? She’s ready for primetime.

Though, I would temper that slightly with

This or that: Yes, the idea of forcing candidate to choose between Pepsi and Coke or Johnny Cash and Elvis was a little gimmicky but it’s often those allegedly silly questions where who these people really are is revealed. Count us as a fan.

There is no other agency like the EPA. It should really be renamed the job-killing organization of America. . . . I fought behind closed doors against my own party on TARP.”

Amongst a rather bland lineup, Bachmann was a breath of fresh air.
